It is expected 80% of spectators to events at Optus Stadium will be by train.Car parks at Perth train stations is free on weekends. Park and ride should be a popular way of getting to Optus Stadium. From Perth the train crosses the Swan River on the Goongoongup railway bridge, next to the Windan Bridge.

Extra busses will be in service until construction off the pedestrian bridge to East Perth is complete. From, Victoria Park, Belmont and Burswood. Public buses in the Perth CBD are free.
WALK/CYCLE path along the Swan River if approaching from the southwest or Victoria Park which is south of the Optus Stadium. If approaching Optus Stadium from the many cheap hotels in Belmont, walk west along the Great Eastern Highway, then turn right along Victoria Park Drive after walking under and past (500m) the rail bridge
The Windan Bridge from East Perth should be a pedestrian option if you're not drunk. It's a big drop. Bicycle routes to Optus Stadium are the same as that for pedistrians mentioned above though I guess the Windan Bridge would be closed for cyclists on event days.
From east Perth over the new Swan River crossing pedestrian bridge in 2021 when the delayed Matagarup bridge construction is finished. If you don't have a hotel near East Perth, then catch a bus in Perth's CBD, at St Georges marked "WACA"Unfortunately because of engineering stuff ups, the foot bridge won't be operational till late 2018. Because of the transport pressures, this delay means no Friday night games at the Optus Stadium till the bridge is operational. An alternate, longer pedestrian route joining East Perth with the new Optus Stadium is under the Goongoongup railway bridge over the Swan River.
BY BOAT. A jetty at the stadium is planned for a ferry service between Perth and the Optus Stadium. Freo Docker supporter could combine a football match in Perth with a pleasant Perth whole boat charter cruise back to Fremantle down the Swan River. April & May 2018 the Swan River is closed to boats while the Matagarup bridge is being built.
